Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 2/19/2014

    " Laurens is probably the best historical romantic fiction author there is. Plot plus romance. I look forward to the next one in this new series, which brings back some of the Cynsters and Bastion Club members, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 2/19/2014

    " All I can think is... delicious. Fun, good historical detail, interesting heroine, alpha, but not alphole, hero... The only reason I'm waiting to read more of the quartet is so that I can draw out the pleasure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 2/17/2014

    " Ms. Laurens is truly spectacular with this new quartet of books. I fell in love with this book and knew I had to have all four books in the series. I definitely recommend this to all who love historical romances. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa B | 2/15/2014

    " The book was okay. I'm intrigued by the series and Laurens has a way of making you want to know what happens to the other characters. I wasn't as invested in the main characters of this book like I have been with others in her books. If you like Laurens, you'll likely enjoy this book. If you haven't read her, it's probably not the best one to start with. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 2/2/2014

    " This book started out with a long drawn out prologue set in India. I almost put the book down because I was so bored with it. After reading more review on here I decided to stick it out. I like Deliah. I thought her Character grew alot during the book. The actual romance was lacking a lot for me. I wasn't as captivated by this book as I have been by other Stephanie Laurens novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 stella yip | 2/2/2014

    " i have to say, in the beginning, i don't really get what the story is going about, but(thank god!), a quarter later, i manage to catch up. which i'm thankful . great story, though. "

    " "The Untamed Bride" (Black Cobra 1/4) by Stephanie Laurens starts (March 1822) a new series about corrupt English aristocrats (funding Regency King George) who pillage villages in India. When the youngest of a group of elite Guard "soliders" (typo p11) is typically tortured and killed finding incriminating papers sealed with the villains' unique family ring, the remaining quartet split up with copies and head for home and Cynster support. A beguiling female entangles each in passion. First, Deliah sees the evil aide shoot at Del. Kisses ("Finding.") lead to "shattered" in flowing explicit detail. I'm sure Major Hamilton and Emily Ensworth will hit the heights equally in sequel. When I read summaries, I usually remember. In "Temptation and Surrender", manor Lord Jonas hires Emily (Beauregard), on obviously identically penned references, when he falls for her smile, to run the local inn, with her step-siblings in tow. Excellent 50ish page supplement universe includes more Barnaby Adair cases I couldn't find before. "

    " The entire book felt contrived. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamila Robins | 12/16/2013

    " PURE STEPHANIE LAURENS AND A WONDERFUL ESCAPE FROM REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 10/1/2013

    " Good 1st book to a series adventure. Simon Prebble as narrator is fabulous! Fun to have other characters of Stephanie Laurens incorporated into this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Tisdale | 9/23/2013

    " Cynster was so much better. I struggled through this. The only reason I finished is because I needed a book set in India. I'll keep reading because it sounds like one takes place in Yemen. That's not a good reason to keep reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Freida Stewart | 9/15/2013

    " There is a reason why I always buy Stephanie Laurens' books as soon as they are released. This wonderful book has a new storyline that includes the Cynster family from previous books. It's a great read! "

    " Another mystery - guy gets the girl book - "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasneem | 8/17/2013

    " Loved it, especially because of the picture of Colonial India, the travel to get to England and the suspence. She is a good writer. The hero is so passionate, and the heroine is one I really liked. She had spirit, courage and common sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 5/26/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaetrin | 5/1/2013

    " I didn't really like Simon Prebble's narration - it was too much like a VB ad - "matter of fact, I've got it now". Story was a bit ordinary too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry | 3/27/2013

    " This was a difficult read for me as I just didn't care about the "mission". War is not something I like to read about. I did like that the heroine found herself at home among the other strong, smart Cynster women and that characters from the past were revisited. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ktouton | 11/20/2012

    " I could not finish the book. I had just finished a Nicholas Sparks book. I might have been bored by the genre. It would be difficult for me to even state what the plot was. "
